  • Forecaster use in D2D

  • Situational Awareness Display System (SADS)

  • WRF Model Initialization


Forecaster use in d2d

Forecaster Use in D2D

  • Preferred OA of most forecasters at OUN

  • Rough estimate of 165 D2D bundles

  • Heavy use in convective, winter and wildfire

LAPS on SADS

  • Use standalone IGC_Process to create images

  • Animated GIF shows multiple parameters

  • Capability for user-defined images

  • Clearly delineate areas of interest

  • Not absolutely necessary to know the parameter displayed


Wrf model initialization

WRF Model Initialization


Wrf model initialization1

WRF Model Initialization

  • Use “Research” version of LAPS (i.e. recent)

  • 5 km resolution

  • Runs external to AWIPS

  • “Basic” datasets from AWIPS via rsync to LDAD

  • Ingests 27 WSR-88D radars

  • Use Level II WSR-88D data from NSSL

  • RUC13 background

  • Hot start
